How front offices see it:
"veteran" = 40+ year old
"back end of the Rotation starter" = bad pitcher.
"WS winning" = in 1997
"able to hit" = for a pitcher
"Former All-Star" = enough said
"wanting to play for the Nats" = a good thing, but only for the Nats
"willing to teach our young guys the art of pitching" = looking for a job as a pitching coach.

I have liked a lot of the moves Rizzo made, but signing Livo for $1 million was a low-risk, low-reward move and definitely not a "steal" since no other teams really wanted or needed him.
Ok. Then we got a steal when we signed D Cab. That's my comparison. :shrug:
